Christmas Eve Surprise


What could possibly make our two girls bust some smiles like these?


Oh - I dunno... maybe THESE guys showing up at our house and ringing the doorbell while all wearing santa clause hats! The girls were kinda shell-shocked!

But they recovered quickly and the next 12 hours were filled up with some serious cousin time. They wasted no time getting down...


There was playing (that included gigantic bows)...


There was a present exchange!


Thanks guys for spoiling us like always! Years ago - before Meron got home - our awesome cousins had built her a stuffed bunny and recorded a message to her in it that plays when she squeezes it. To this day it's one of her most prized possessions. Well - they hooked Mebbie up with a super dope bunny too - that when squeezed says "This is Ansley. And This is Will! We love you Mebrate!"

They got Meron a super special book that was read and recorded by her cousins. She LOVES it. They are also dead asleep in their new PJ's as I type.


Next it was off to church for a little Christmas worship time...


Mommy and Will tried to behave themselves in big church...


But they just didn't have it in them!


We wrapped the night up by closing down Macaroni Grill with some good dinner before having to hug it all out and say goodbye to our surprise guests as they hit the road to go spend some time with other family members...


Guys... from the bottom of our hearts - THANK YOU! You may never know just how big a deal today was and how much it meant to us. You brought an entire days worth of joy to our girls just by being here. It was your PRESENCE not the PRESENTS that made their hearts smile and their sleepy little heads murmur "I miss my cousins already" as we were tucking them in tonight.

We're grateful for you guys and the hearts you carry around...
